Hello LJ’ers,
One week ago today I was picking up 2000 copies of my new book, Chip Carving Essentials, A Step-by-Step Guide to Successful Chip Carving. The finished product was boxed and ready to go! The pressman who ran my book was my first sale. He knew right away that his uncle would really enjoy this book. I loaded them into my truck and trailer and got home in time to unload and load up again and head to Carv-Fest for three days of classes. If you'd like to check it out, CLICK HERE!

In this book I will teach you chip carving secrets that I’ve learned over the past 25 years. You will learn…

how to avoid chip-out
how to apply a Quick & Easy Finish
proper chip carving technique
how to get a scary sharp knife
how to quickly apply a pattern
how to carve common shapes
and much more!
ISBN: 978-1-63315-269-4
130 pages

Congratulations on your book. That had to be a proud moment when you picked up that first printed copy.
I just ordered a copy of your book and I’m hoping it’s autographed when I receive it.

Good Luck! ~ Dan

Hi Dan,
Thanks for your order! Your autographed copy is in the mail.
It was an exciting time to see my book come off the press and then pick up the finished version. I’m glad my wife encouraged me to do it. Enjoy!
